Sometimes there are animals that transmit their appearance or something that humanizes reflecting part of his character. For Starry Weever (Trachinus Radiatus) of his head, with his mouth and his eyes convey an appearance of seriousness, of the aggressiveness of a predator waiting, patient, sand prey approaches. This was a photograph that by time I had in my head and after several attempts got the goal he sought. A front and symmetrical head shot in which I tried to highlight the morphology of isolating animal environment with a single illuminating flash overhead and with a snoot.
